    We have a white silkie rooster which was our first chicken. We now have a mixed flock with turkeys and rhoad island reds. All the other chickens and turkeys get along great. For some reason every chicken and turkey around hates our silkie. Just wanted to know if other people have had this problem. I just figure we are going to have to give him away. I would apperciate any help or suggestion.

    Unfortunately there is a pecking order in poultry. I think that it would be best to rehome him unless you are able to have a separate housing area for him and get him some hens his size. Best of luck and wishes for the poor one!
